The Supreme Court in London has made the extraordinary ruling that the Prime Minister Boris Johnson broke the law and misled the Queen in his highly controversial decision to prorogue Parliament for 5 weeks – making the PM of the United Kingdom an actual criminal.

Speaking at the Supreme Court, the court’s president Lady Hale declared that “the decision to advise her Majesty to prorogue Parliament was unlawful – because it had the effect of frustrating or preventing the ability of Parliament to carry out its constitutional functions without proper justification.

Hale went on to state that, as the decision to prorogue was unlawful, Parliament has not actually in effect been prorogued and could therefore be recalled immediately.

The Supreme Court’s decision was unanimously agreed between all 11 judges.

Immediately following the ruling, the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, issued a statement declaring that Parliament would be recalled as soon as possible.

Numerous opposition MPs have already responded the the Supreme Court’s incredible decision by calling for Boris Johnson to resign – claiming that his position as Prime Minister is now untenable.

Whilst speaking at Labour Conference, the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said:

I will be in touch immediately to demand Parliament is recalled so we can question the Prime Minister, demand he obeys the law that has been passed by parliament […] I invite Boris Johnson to consider his position.”

Labour’s Shadow Foreign Secretary, Emily Thornberry, said:

“Boris Johnson should resign and Parliament ought to be recalled immediately.”

Astonishingly, even Nigel Farage was unsupportive of the Prime Minister following the decision, tweeting that:

“The calling of a Queen’s Speech and prorogation is the worst political decision ever. Dominic Cummings must go.”

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
